As most of you are aware, I can’t help but evangelize about the power of Journaling.
Regularly writing your thoughts down, getting them out of your head and onto paper, or the computer has so many benefits that you’d be mad not to try it!
If you’ve read any of my books you’ll know that your conscious mind can only hold around seven chunks of information at any one time. If any of those chunks are deliberating on worthless ramblings that are inconsequential to your task for the day, get ’em outta your head! Leave some space for things that’ll help you solve your issues.
It’s something I’ve done everyday for years and although it may seem that nothing good can come out of spilling my thoughts onto paper (or in my case the keyboard), it’s amazing how much can be gained from this small, seemingly inconsequential task.
It doesn’t matter if you’ve never written in a journal before, if you’ve no idea what to write about, or even if you don’t think you’ll be able to do it everyday.
They say it takes approximately three weeks of regular, repeated action for something to become a habit, so why not try it for three weeks and see what happens! (BTW, if you miss a day, you have to start again 😉 )
If after all this convincing talk, you’re still not sure, let me know what’s holding you back in the comments, or drop me an email.
